About This Project

Driven by a desire to reduce class sizes, Mazenod College engaged Tony Cotter, Director Cotter Reid Architects to design a new Music, Drama & Information Technology (IT) Complex, thus allowing other existing facilities to be refurbished for alternate uses. The brief received by Cotter Reid Architects Director, Tony Cotter included the provision for two Orchestral Rehearsal rooms; a Drama classroom; two Music Classrooms; eight private Music Practice rooms; two Information Technology classrooms; a small commercial kitchen for functions and office accommodation for eight staff. Bold forms highlight the exterior, with traditional materials utilised in innovative ways. Face brick (prevalent throughout Mazenod College’s building stock) was used in large monolithic panels. Copper cladding is employed in the form of large foils, which act as markers to highlight building entries and allude to Christian iconography through the use of ascending forms. * Undertaken as Latitude Architects
